With Saturday’s announcement that Amy Coney Barrett is being nominated for the Supreme Court, the left has become especially apoplectic in response. Like a football team that’s down 21 points with three minutes left, they are desperately trying to game out how to win a game they can’t win. We’ve seen insanity like going after Barrett’s adopted children and hinting that they were victims of human trafficking, for example (see Democrats Push Disgustingly Insane Conspiracy Theory About Amy Coney Barrett).
In other words, the mental psyche of the collective left is as fragile as ever. George Conway, a rabid anti-Trump figure, may have just broken them.
George Conway has managed to con the majority of the opposition to Trump that he’s on their side. Turns out the “enemy” of your enemy is not in fact your friend. pic.twitter.com/udvN5awxmJ

Hear that? George Conway is now “MAGA.” I’m not sure I could think of a more ludicrous contention, but here we are.
The meltdown continued in response to Conway’s comments.
Completely sane. pic.twitter.com/v7ysdFc6jW

We've been trying to tell y'all that George Conway and the rest of the NeverTrumpers were not allies, not even conveniently. And here they go, right back in to their horrible ways. https://t.co/I6yMIn6KNN

George Conway is here to remind you that The Lincoln Project Republicans want to control women's bodies too—they'll just revert back to the old GOP tactic of whittling away at clinic access for poor women to do it.
They. Aren't. Your. Friends. https://t.co/LxgrDHvjw7

This seems appropriate.
RedState has been no fan of George Conway. In fact, I tend to think he conducts himself in a fairly sleazy way, especially in how he treats his wife publicly. But it’s hilarious to see the left start eating their own the moment they perceive someone is stepping out of line. Conway is just stating the obvious, which is that there is no logical rebuttal to Barrett’s nomination. If Democrats were smart, they’d recognize that, surrender on this, and help bolster their advantage with women in the electorate. They aren’t smart though, so instead, you get unhinged nonsense like the above.
These are the consequences of losing elections. You do not get to exact your will via shouting on Twitter if you do not hold the levers of power. Leftists have never been good losers, and that’s becoming more obvious by the day. Watching them squirm as Trump appoints his third Supreme Court justice is just delicious.
